Instructions Checklist
  • Heat oven to 350° F. Using a sharp paring knife, score the ham with lines ¼ inch deep and 1 inch apart, creating a diamond pattern (this will help the skin to crisp while cooking). Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil. Place the ham, skin-side up, on the prepared sheet and cover with foil.

  • In a food processor or blender, pulse rosemary, thyme, tarragon, orange peel, marjoram, lavender (if using), salt, peppercorns, and olive oil to make paste.

  • Rub the herb paste all over the skin, making sure to get inside the score marks. Bake until the skin is crispy and the ham is warmed through, about 1½ hours. Serve warm or at room temperature.
